I hope you missed me, cause I have candy!

Well hello everyone! Long time no see! First off, I just want to say how much I missed all of you and missed posting this past month or so. However, my family needed it, and I think I did too.

Joe took some vacation time and ended up working it to get 18 days straight off. The first week we did yard work and re-did our chicken pen. The rest of the time we went to his mom and dad's camper at a lake about n hour away. We all fished and swam and ate out. It was nice. However, I was ready to come home.

Once we came home it was time for Joe to go back to work (for 3 days), and he did. Then he decided he wanted to take the rest of his vacation he had left and we ended up turning around and going back to the camper again. We fished, swam, and tried not to eat out. It was nice. We got home the day before yesterday and I am so glad to be back. The only internet we could get was on our phones and that tiny screen just doesn't fill in for the real thing!

So, in celebration of me being back to 'real life' I am offering up some yummy blog candy!!!

3 Sets of Starving Artistamps Sentiments!!

If you win, you will get the Boopie, Tropics #2, and Faith sentiment sets.

All you have to do is leave a comment here telling me why you love Doodle Factory! That's not so hard, huh? I will draw a random name on Monday morning (the 28th) and announce the winner.

Welcome back Heidi! I hope I don't mess up your blog candy count because I don't need to enter, but I just wanted to say that I did notice you were MIA and I'm glad it was because you were getting some R&R. AND your vacation even goes hand in hand with the next DF set! Glad to see you posting again and I can't wait to see what you have come up with for the next sentiments.

Dawn Mercedes said...

I love DF's quirky and silliness. It's such a fresh look! Also..the size. I love the large size Really takes up space, something to color in...something better than an embellishment! Some stamps out there are so small.

Pick me! Pick me! I just ordered Tropics...need the words...I'm crossing my fingers!

Lindsay Spencer said...

Yeah, you're back! I've been watching for you. It sounds like you had a great time. I'd like to see how your yard looks. You've spent a lot of time on it.

I love Doodle Factory because it reminds me of something I loved as a child.

Alex said...

Hi Heidi

Mel said...

I think I missed out on the deadline but wanted to say how much I love doodle factory stamps anyways. :D I think the images are so unique and spunky, and fill the void for dude stamps that exists in my current stamp collection! I got laid off of my job unexpectedly so can't make any stamping purchases for a while, but when I can Doodle Factory is at the top of my list!!

Billye Hanning said...

What is not to love. All are great and fun. I love the use of different fonts and sizes of fonts also......Billye
